I’m currently watching Babylon 5 on DVD from Netflix. I watched quite a bit of it several years ago when SciFi or some other cable channel was rerunning it, but I’ve never seen it from beginning to end.
One question that’s popped into my head as I’m finishing up Season 1: is Londo Mollari’s accent supposed to be a Centauri accent? Because none of the other Centauri I’ve seen so far speak with that accent, so I can’t figure out if the accent is the character’s, or if it is the actor’s. If it’s the character who speaks that way, why is he the only one?
Also, I just wanted to share a fun background detail I noticed in the episode “Signs and Portents.” When Lord Kiro and Lady Ladira first arrive on the station and Ladira starts having her “vision”, she is in front of a display panel showing events scheduled on the station for that day. And amongst the various mundane events listed, you can see “Rolling Stones Farewell Concert”. I guess it’s no surprise that the animated corpse that is Keith Richards would still be rocking 200 years from now!
